My response:

Yes - updating of 2965 to document how the mechanism works, and possibly 
describing issues due to non-conformant uses and inherent limitations in 
the mechanism, SHOULD be in scope for the WG.

No - creating a new cookie mechanism to supplant the one specified in 2965 
SHOULD NOT be in scope for the WG.

That doesn't fit any of alternatives 1-3, so I'm a 4....
